compassionately towards a healthier, happier you."

This highly readable book maps a hype-free path to a realistic, sustainable, and healthy relationship with food and eating. Along the way--with clarity and humor--Langer takes on celebrity culture, the diet and wellness industries, and our society's wayward obsession with youth and thinness. A timely, fun, and science-informed read!"
